Organizations are looking at Open Source to reduce costs and avoid proprietary "lock-in", not just with Linux but throughout their middleware stack. However, concerns may arise around interoperability, reliability, performance, and support. This session addresses these concerns and looks at open source technologies as an alternative to proprietary middleware.

What Attendees Will Learn:
